Claiming Your UK State Pension as an Expat

The Department of Work & Pensions (DWP) does not pay the benefit automatically but will send letters inviting people to make a claim.
The letters go to the last known address on file, On moving abroad expats should contact the DWP’s International Pension Centre to update their details so they don’t miss the invitation.
The letter comes out about four months before your State Retirement Age birthday. If you do not get the letter or you are unsure about what is happening to your State Pension.
